May 1, 2019

Michael F. Rodgers, who retired Jan. 31 as CHA's senior vice president of public policy and advocacy, gives remarks at a ceremony where he accepted the American Hospital Association's Honorary Life Membership Award. The April 8 event was part of the AHA Annual Membership Meeting in Washington, D.C. AHA President and Chief Executive Rick Pollack described Rodgers as "a powerful advocate for expanding access to health care for those who face barriers" who used his expertise to further CHA's and AHA's shared goal of improving patient care. Rodgers brought a deep knowledge of health care policy on aging to CHA. During his 18 years at the association, he advanced CHA's vision for U.S. health care and promoted CHA's advocacy agenda before Congress, the White House and federal agencies.
